26 April 2012, 10:28
Nairobi - Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta and Ex-Civil Service chief Francis Muthaura have now applied to the International Criminal Court Trial Chamber V to postpone setting the date of their trial, Capital News reports.
In a joint application filed at The Hague-based court on Wednesday, Kenyatta and Muthaura want the court to invoke its inherent powers to delay the trial date until their challenge of the court’s jurisdiction is determined by the Appeals Chamber.
The two – who are facing charges alongside Eldoret North MP William Ruto and radio presenter Joshua arap Sang – said it would be in the interest of justice and fair trial that the Trial Chamber awaits the outcome of the appeal.
